ActionAlert:Submit Comments on Draft State Survey re:Significant Disproportionality by July 12, 2019

Posted by: Jamie Anderson

The U.S. Department of Education (ED) is accepting comments on a proposed voluntary Survey of States to collect information on the State's use of the standard methodology, or another methodology, to identify significant disproportionality in school districts. The Survey was developed prior to ED conceding that States are obligated to implement the 2016 Equity in IDEA regulations as required by the District Court for the District of Columbia in COPAA v DeVos. 

In a comprehensive letter, COPAA opposes the Survey for the reasons outlined.

COPAA’s comments also include an Appendix detailing specific edits should ED go forward with the Survey.

Take Action: By 11:59pm ET, July 12, 2019. COPAA has provided a template letter and step-by-step directions to submit your comment.

Dear ED, I'm asking that you abandon the proposed survey and help States implement the Equity in IDEA regulations now. Thank you
